The main purpose of this investigation was to determine the validity of the plasticity theories and the correctness of various assumptions made in these theories. For this purpose, plastic stress-strain relations for biaxial tension-compression principal stresses were determined for a 14S-T4 aluminum alloy. The combined tension and compression principal stresses were produced by subjecting a thin-walled tubular specimen to axial tension and torque.
